The Notre Dame linebacker has been topping news reports all week after it was discovered his dead girlfriend wasn't a real person.
Sunday, January 20
When news broke that Manti Te'o's dead girlfriend wasn't real, news organizations including CNN and ESPN hopped on the story and tried to get to the bottom of it. While Te'o and the Notre Dame Athletic Department maintain that he was the victim of a 'Catfish' type hoax , others aren't so hopeful. "Te’o actually thought the romance, which, like everything these days, started online, was for real," A Chicago Sun-Times writer argues. "And when he found out he’d been goofed on, played like a high school geek who just received a 36-month swirlie — plus, he had played along with his own lies — he grasped for dignity and killed off the chick ." The term 'Catfish' was popularized by a movie and subsequent TV show, which explores online …

For the ninth time in 20 playoff appearances, the New England Patriots are just one game from advancing to the Super Bowl. That game will be played at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, Jan. 20 at 6:30 p.m. against the Baltimore Ravens. It is the second consecutive season the Patriots and Ravens will meet in the AFC Championship game at Gillette Stadium. New England beat Baltimore in last season’s AFC title game, 23-20 to advance to Super Bowl XLVI.

In a rematch of last year's conference title game, New England hosts Baltimore for the second year in a row. Will it turn out 23-20 Patriots like last year? Add your prediction in the comment section.
UPDATE: Well, it was just Bill and me who even picked the Ravens, who, as we all know too well, won 28-13. I'm not sure how to pick who was closer between my pick of 28-24 Ravens and Bill's pick of 27-24 Ravens. I think you could argue that either way. Thanks, everyone, for the predictions. ~~~~~ Once again, the road to the Super Bowl goes through Foxborough. On Sunday at 6:30 p.m., in a rematch of last year's AFC championship, Baltimore comes to Gillette Stadium to tackle New England. Last year's battle ended memorably when Pro Bowl Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff missed a short field goal that would have sent the game into overtime. The Patriots won 23-20. This year, the Patriots are an 8.5 point favorite to reach their second straight Super…
